Practical information
— A member of the programme’s teaching staff wil act as placement supervisor. The student will also be allocated a supervisor at the organization providing the placement: this is the placement mentor.
— The Examination Board must approve and sign the placement contract.
— No later than two weeks after the start of the placement, the student will submit a work plan to their supervisor. A work plan details the practical implementation of the placement assignment, including an action plan, a timeline specifying various stages and clearly defined end products. One of the compulsory end products is a placement report. This work plan is produced by the student in consultation with the placement mentor.
